2009 Vintage Christmas

Here are some pictures of our 2009 Vintage Christmas in Madison, WI. Our white tree is not vintage but most of the ornaments on the tree are.

This year I have really started collecting vintage handmade items. I picked up this great wall hanging for $1 at a rummage. It has the 12 days of Christmas on it.

I got these crazy cool wisemen for free at an estate sale. The lady was so happy I took them out of the free box. Their heads are made with covered toliet paper rolls. Felt is used for their facial features. They have some really nice pieces of vintage jewelry on them. I love the "puffed" head pieces.

Like so many of my collections, it starts with one good deal on a group of items and just grows from there. I got a bag of vintage beaded ornaments at SVdP for $1.50. I was hooked. So I have started picking up beaded ornaments where I can. I also picked up a NOS kit and plan to try to make one over this holiday season from the kit. Wish me luck!

Here is a close up of some of the beaded ornaments.

Stay tuned . . . I will be posting more pics from our 2009 Vintage Christmas.



  1. Thanks so much for sharing you beautiful vintage life. Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. I've been fortunate enough to find several amazing blogs and I'm listing my favorites on my site...and I'm so new that I don't even know if I'm doing it rite cause it looks so different from most of them I've seen but at least they are there. I hope to stay in touch with your site. Thanks again...Dawnlyne
